Holland America extends promo, offers agents bonus commission

SEATTLE — Holland America Line is extending its popular ‘Save Now, Cruise Later: Have it All’ promotion and offering travel agents a bonus commission on select 2021 voyages.

The promotion now runs through Sept. 30, 2020, giving guests the chance to receive an array of free perks when booking Holiday 2020 through winter/spring 2022 cruises, or Alaska Land+Sea Journeys (excluding Grand Voyages). Perks include a free Signature Beverage Package, free gratuities and a free Signature Dining Package, which includes one evening in both Pinnacle Grill and Canaletto specialty restaurants. Plus, suite guests also receive a free Wi-Fi package. All bookings are eligible for 50% reduced deposits.

As an added incentive for agents, the cruise line is also offering a 2% bonus commission on new 2021 Alaska, Europe and Canada/New England cruise bookings and Alaska Land+Sea Journeys.

“Our cruises might be paused, but travel advisors are continuing to plan Holland America Line vacations for their clients, and with the extension of this promotion and the reassurance of our Cancellation Protection Program it’s the perfect time to book,” said Gus Antorcha, Holland America Line’s president. “The 2% bonus commission for travel advisors is our way of saying thank you for your loyalty, for your confidence in Holland America Line and for extending that confidence to your clients. The promotion for guests and bonus commission for agents makes it a win-win for everyone.”

To give passengers peace of mind during this time, Holland America offers a Cancellation Protection Program that can be purchased for new cruise or Alaska Land+Sea Journey bookings or existing bookings as long as it is purchased before the date cancellation fees begin to accrue. Offered as a Standard or Platinum plan, guests can cancel up to 24 hours before cruise departure with Standard and right up to departure under Platinum and receive refunds between 80-90% of eligible amounts paid. The cost varies by cruise fare and is non-refundable.
